gun law reforms. mayor bloomberg told nbc's david gregory on "meet the press" that lawmakers are going to spern the public at their peril. >> if 90% of the public want something and their representatives vote against that, common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that. >> later in the same program, mr. common sense, himself, the nra's wayne lapierre dismissed the mayor's campaign as a mere vanity project. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants, they don't want him in their homes, don't want him telling them what food to eat. they shiure don't want him tellg them what defense firearms to own. he can't buy america. >> right. of course, the nra never tries to use its financial resources to influence opinions. wayne lapierre seems to forget mayor bloomberg doesn't need to buy public opinion on this issue because the majority of americans agree with him. between 85% and 91% of americans support universal background checks in recent polls. that includes 85% of gun owners. so mor

ground in the years to come that real money can be put behind a gun law reform message, and it can be a winning message. the fact of the matter is, i watchedway lapierre call mayor bloomberg nutty this morning. well, wayne lapierre is about as nutty as a bag of trail mix when it comes down to issues like this. the end of the day, you're having this kind of gun violence, it happened on a day after day basis, americans want real change. they want universal background checks. you know, they do want, you know, limits on high capacity magazines. they do want a ban on assault weapons that can fire multiple, multiple rounds without reload. they do want those things. you won't see it in this legislation, but what mayor bloomberg and other mayors around the nation are doing will be a kick in the right direction. >> a lot of opposition from republicans and a number of democrats as well against the assault weapons ban specifically mayor bloomberg on "meet the press" earlier. pretty much saying that it probably won't pass. take ap listen. >> we are going to have a vote for sure on assault weap

. they passed law after law after law and it has never been done. on both those issues, actual border security and stopping people from coming over illegally, and stopping visa overstays the government is in a mess. jon: the visa overstay ought to be a easy part. this is somebody presents passport and documentation and comes into the country and then disappears. >> especially after september 11th. they passed the patriot act con contained a provision about visa overstays. before that was done in the late '90s done after the first world trade center bombings. people come in, thererecord fort the federal government is not able to track them and find out if their visa expires and haven't left, then where they are. that is something almost at, at the starting point now. they just haven't been able to do it. jon: well i know that the senate proposals on immigration reform from say senator marco rubio and also senator rand paul put heavy emphasis on the border security. so where do those proposals go if we have no way of measuring whether the border is actually secure or not? >> rube yos people -- r

clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look
-sex marriage for the first time this week. the court will consider challenges to two laws, california's proposition 8, a 2008 ballot measure, that added a marriage ban to that state's constitution, and the defense of marriage act, a '96 law, which bars the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriage, depriving gay couples of federal benefits. the nine justices will weigh in on the constitutionality of marriage laws at a time when public opinion has dramatically shifted on the issue. 38 states, though, still ban it, either by law or constitutional amendment. here for a impressive view, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, good morning. big week. set the stage for us. >> reporter: right. well, both cases basically raise the same constitutional question. can the states or the federal government, under the constitution, discriminate against gays and lesbians but not either recognizing their marriages or permitting them to marry. the advocates of proposition 8 say yes. marriage should be the tradition should be observed, we shouldn't rush into this. and marriage s

hours later when law enforcement made entry into the room that's when they discovered the suspect and the other victims. bill: my assumption is that they heard a gunshot that's when they decided to move. would that be act watt -- accurate. >> i don't believe at that is what happened but i wasn't there so i can't say exactly. bill: will there be another briefing today on the base? >> if more information becomes available we can release we will push it out. if that requires a press conference, then obviously we'll do that. bill: sergeant, we'll be in contact with you. thank you for your time. >> thank you. bill: especially during this most difficult time. our best to you and everybody there. thank you, sergeant. >> thank you, sir. heather: as we mentioned quantico is both a marine base and a home to the fbi's training academy. there is even a mock town on the base for training purposes. it opened back in 1917 and trained thousands of soldiers during world war i. in 1934 the marine corps let the fbi start to use the firing ranges on its base and they have been there ever since. >> no

? >> one of the big barriers is that there are no salvage laws in space. so if the united states were to start an initiative today to clean up all the debris, we don't own it. we can't just go and get it. and, you decide, are you going to get the little pieces? that would determine if you're going to use some of the techniques like foam to catch it, or do you go for the big ones? and from a legal perspective, if i went after a big piece of junk and grappled it and it broke apart and am i then legally liable for the damage caused to rich dalbello's satellites? so there are many legal issues to be considered. and then the political and geostrategic. if, for example, you are using lasers. well, i'm certain if the united states started to start using lasers to deorbit large pieces of debris, that would make other countries of the world very nervous. just as it would legitimately make the united states very nervous if other countries were to do the same of the so i think there is just a host of not just technical problems but legal and political problems but debris and the neoissue i think

it. slightly different arguments on wednesday in the defense of marriage case, the federal law passed 17 years ago that says the federal government won't recognize any same-sex marriages even in the states where it's legal. the federal government says it has to have its own definition of marriage. the opponents say that doesn't make any sense constitutionally, either. >> prop 8, about the right to get married. d.o.m.a. about federal benefits when married. >> exactly. >> interrelated, but not the same issue. >> yes, because even if the supreme court says that prop 8 is struck down, that doesn't require any state to permit same-sex marriage. it will still be up to the states one way or the other. the only question in the doma case is whether the federal government will extend about 1,000 benefits, just like it would to opposite-sex couples, to gay couple who is get married. >> busy week, thank you. >>> the issue of same-sex marriage is among the most contentious facing the country. with both sides claiming they have moral and legal grounds to make their respective arguments. how the deb
